Most of us know the richest person in America (Bill Gates at $70 billion).

But what about the richest person in your state?

Wealth-X has put together a list of all 50 states with their top wealth holders. Surprisingly nine states don’t have billionaires (and yet somehow they manage to function). It only took $300 million to be the richest Wyoming resident, and $400 million to be the wealth king of Alaska.

Granted, many of the super rich don’t really “live” anywhere, since they flit from home to home and state to state. Wealth-X used the business address for each wealth holder to determine residence.
